Pad printing

Pad printing is an indirect gravure process that enables any surface to be printed in almost any shape right up to the edge. Made of silicone, a printing pad takes the ink from a gravure printing plate and transfers it to the final product. The elasticity of the pad means that both convex and concave shapes can be finished.

Main areas of application:

  • Advertising material
  • Toys
  • Automotive products
  • Sporting goods
  • Electronics and household appliances
  • Housings/packaging
  • Glass/ceramics
  • Cosmetics


Our machinery business is highly individual and project-based. Our printing and finishing machinery, configured to suit customer requirements, is delivered directly to the customer after a thorough quality check at the manufacturing plant.

Prompt service and spare parts are delivered just in time. All our partners also offer a 24-hour over-night service.


Having a large product range also entails a lot of responsibility. Responsibility to customers and to suppliers. That’s why we’ve bundled all our strengths and supply our customers in Austria and Hungary exclusively from our central warehouse in Vienna.

We can also fall back on the central warehouses of individual manufacturers in urgent cases and for new product launches.

Machine service

We’ve been supplying and servicing machines for the printing industry for over 50 years. From the pre-press stage to offset printing, from digital printing to finishing.

When you buy machinery from bauer+bauer, you always get the back-up of a strong service partner as well.

Pad printing ink

As the exclusive distributor of Coates Screen Inks (previously Wiederhold), we can offer you the advantages of a former medium-sized printing ink manufacturer plus the investment power of a multinational corporation, the DIC Sun Chemicals Group, the largest printing ink manufacturer in the world. As a result, we can offer you a full range of screen printing inks including additives for virtually any tasks.

Since it was founded more than 100 years ago as Hermann Wiederhold GmbH in Nuremberg, Coates Screen Inks has been able to look back over one of the longest histories in the field of screen and pad printing inks.

Coates rightly lives up to its reputation of being the “colour pharmacy” of Europe,
and can therefore competently fulfil the most unusual special requests and difficult requirements.
